The word "Elocution" means the art of effective public speaking. The reason why elocution lessons are regarded as important is because they are related to mastering the art of oral communication. The aim behind group elocutions and recitation competitions is to ensure our students get enough exposure to pronunciation, intonation and accuracy in language and a sense of rhythm.
The 6th of July marked the beginning of the senior school elocution competition. The event comprised of individual elocutions on poems like - The road not taken, Night of the Scorpion, Invictus, Doors, Still I rise etc by selected individuals from each class. This was followed by group elocutions from each class competing with different sections.
